Interesting, in Norway, they call Father Christmas ‘Julenissen’ but I thought that would be one of his elves since in Danish ‘nice’ means elf whereas Father Christmas is ‘Julemanden’. Father elf christmas shirt. Son of a Dane here. Nisse is tiny tricksters who are usually nice, but if you mistreat them, they’ll steal your socks, make your dinner cold, curdle your milk, et cetera. They are not elves. Goblin would probably be the closest translation (there’s no “goblin” in Norwegian). Julenissen is the main character (the Christmas man). Nisse is something in between goblins and elves. Christmas lore (the beardy Santa Claus and his helpers) generally doesn’t mix with Norse “Nisse lore”. Swede here, and a linguist. Remember that translation is always biased; how can we actually determine what a word in one language “means” in another? A “nice” fills approximately the same role as.

A lecturer I had in a translation class brought up the idea that no translation actually evokes the same meaning as the original. Father elf christmas shirt. “Bread” doesn’t mean the same thing as Brot, pain, pane etc. Nisse isn’t elves in Danish. Maybe there’s an equivalency drawn between them in English, but in Danish, nice and elves are different. This is just the sort of thing Heavenly Father is great at helping with. War, famine, disease, poverty…not so much. I’m sure your elf will turn up shortly. Thank you for this post. You just saved me a ton of a headache. We had forgotten to put ours up and the kids are definitely expecting it to show up in the morning. I’d like to thank you for your post also, I have to get stuff this weekend for St. Nicholas day. My kids will be putting up there.

If one said the TV was too loud, the other claimed the volume needed to be turned up. Father elf christmas shirt. Opposite in every way, one was an eternal optimist, the other a doom and gloom pessimist. Just to see what would happen, on the twins’ birthday their father loaded the pessimist’s room with every imaginable toy and game. The optimist’s room he loaded with horse manure. That night the father passed by the pessimist’s room and found him sitting amid his new gifts crying bitterly. “Why are you crying?” the father asked. That’s the problem in a nutshell. The canon characters and the canon plot do not go together outside a children’s story where no one questions tropes. Trying to reconcile the canon plot with a wise, benevolent and competent Dumbledore simply doesn’t work.

Harry, he would have had to care about the best way to defeat. Father elf christmas shirt. Voldemort and would have had to take better care of Harry – which would have led to Harry not getting into quite that many adventures and too boring books. Fewer angsty moments too, since he doesn’t feel isolated and neglected, but that’s a good thing in my opinion. The other problem is that a lot of canons is over the top satire. Inept Ministry, evil step-parents, crazy wizards with no idea about muggles – trying to take that seriously leads to stupid excuses that turn Arthur into a wizard who plays the muggle-loving but ignorant fool to reassure Harry… for years, apparently. Instead of admitting that the traps in book 1 are traps for a children’s book that clever child heroes can deal with, it’s suddenly some master plan to test.
